Mind without a heart,
relentless in its fight,
to reach a place away from where
darkness sheds its light.
Turns and looks away;
thinks before he might,
feel a pain beyond that place
where thoughts change into sight.
Searching for, relentlessly,
what's too far away to ever see,
a soul that dreams inside of me.

Heart without a mind,
relentless in its flight,
to reach a place away from where,
darkness turns to light.
She turns and walks away;
thinks that she just might,
feel a warmth beneath soft lace,
where hopes tell her what's right.
Searching for, relentlessly,
anyway to make it be,
a love her mind won't let her see.

*Penned October 9th, 1987

below the subliminal
deep within manipulation
that's where tr^th resides

This reminds me of classic poems.
You also had some very memorable lines, such as "Mind without a heart".
Very nice, I feel inspired by this.

Great flow
I enjoyed the continuity of thought in this write. My only suggestion for improvement is a subtle shift in grammar in the opening lines:

"Mind without a heart
relentless in its fight
To reach a place away from which
the darkness sheds its light."

Remove all the apostrophes as they are unnecessary and change "where" to "which."

A very beautiful poem.

it's been a long time since ive been reading or writing poems. I've been busy and have sort of lost myself in the chaos. I just want to thank you for having such a wonderful piece there for me to read on my return.

Bobby... of dichotomies.

A glowing read. The refraction and asymmetry work to convey two facets which should complement each other, but often don't.

Thank you for this.

For extravagant rating and kind words, much thanks.

I stopped rating poems here early in 2005, submitting "Not a poem for a 10", shortly thereafter.
